Immediately, she instructed me to shed my socks and shoes and step on a $4000 scale that involved both my hands and feet. Somehow, through modern science this little jewel studied my body and provided a printout of its composition. I was impressed! Oh, and just so God can be further glorified for hearing and answering our prayers, I have gained 4 lbs since asking for prayer for it last week. So, you can go ahead and stop praying for weight gain. You know, we don't want too much of a good thing :)
She then led us into her office and we quickly plopped down and delved into the discussion. Almost 2 hours later, I left there on brain overload, but with a lot of information. She knew her stuff!

Can I ask you to pray for us as we totally adjust our lifestyle to meet my health needs? For about a month, I've been following a very regimented diet, so I'm somewhat accustomed to this already. But now, well, we are having to shift our thinking about food and nutrition and their effects on our health and wellness. That can be hard for a young couple in the south where butter, biscuits, and potatoes are all major food groups and eating out is THE social activity.
